This defies even the most macabre imagination.
Muslim U.S. Congressman lamented: “‘9-11 Was Tough On Muslims,’ Islam In America Is ‘Under Attack, But Must Not Retreat’”
Nancy Pelosi has named American-born convert to Islam Andre Carson to the House Intelligence Committee.
DTN: On May 26, 2012, Carson was a guest speaker at the 37th annual convention of the Islamic Circle of North America/Muslim American Society, in Hartford, Connecticut. During his remarks, Carson claimed that U.S. schools should be modeled after madrassas—Islamic schools infamous for their tendency to promote sexist, anti-Semitic teachings. Said Carson: “America will never tap into educational innovation and ingenuity without looking at the model that we have in our madrassas, in our schools, where innovation is encouraged, where the foundation is the Quran. And that model that we are pushing in some of our schools meets the multiple needs of students…. America must understand that she needs Muslims.”
Tied to terror-linked groups:
Between January 2008 and June 2014, Carson received 55 separate political donations (totaling nearly $34,000 altogether) from terror designated Muslim groups the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim American Society, and the Muslim Public Affairs Council.
Andre Carson declared that the Tea Party is infested with white racists who “would love to see” black people “hanging on a tree.”
Nancy Pelosi to name first Muslim lawmaker to House intelligence committee,” By Lauren French, Politico, January 13, 2015
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi announced in a closed-door meeting Tuesday she would name the first Muslim lawmaker to the House’s Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
A senior Democratic aide said Rep. André Carson of Indiana would be named in the “coming days” to the key national security-focused panel. Pelosi (D-Calif.) told lawmakers of the appointment during the members’ weekly caucus meeting.
Carson would be the first Muslim to serve on the committee and was the second Muslim to be elected to Congress. He already serves on the Armed Services Committee and worked for the Department of Homeland Security’s Fusion Center — the clearinghouse established by the federal government to streamline data sharing between the CIA, FBI, Department of Justice and the military.
The intelligence committee will most likely tackle a series of high-profile international crises during the 114th Congress, including the threat of Islamic militants and Ukraine.
Carson’s office didn’t immediately return a request for comment.
The announcement comes in the wake of last week’s terrorist attack by Islamic extremists and subsequent shootouts with police that left 17 people dead. World leaders gathered on Sunday for a 1 million person “solidarity” protest against the violence that targeted French Jews and journalists.
